A limited release of 4,500 bottles of 25 year old Knockando from Diageo's Special Releases. This 2011 edition is the first time Knockando has ever been featured in the series, and it comes jam-packed with rich, magnificent sherry notes and spice. Aged in first fill European oak sherry casks.
Nose: Sooo buttery and fruity – prunes, raisins and tamarind sweets. In fact, I’ll repeat Tamarind Sweets, and leave it there.
Palate: Very thick and rich, with notes of nutmeg and cardamom pepping up a core of gorgeous old sherry and damson jam. This is exactly what you want from decent sherry-matured Speyside whisky; it’s not too dry, not too rubbery, it has a hint of umami too. Noted traffic cone thief Billy Abbott from “the competition” mentioned getting a whiff of sulphur, but if there was one it was very subdued.
Finish: Medium length, very rich. Some potpourri, mushroom and orange zest.
Overall: You can see this working well with the cheeseboard… Overall it’s a rich, beguiling whisky which will certainly be a big hit when it hits the shops.

I've never experienced a whisky with such an aroma... absolutely beguiling. The most delicious, rich, complex smell... I'd be happy with a glass of this all night just to sniff, no hyperbole, it's really that good.
